Testing?

What is everything that I should be testing for? And what are the best testing kits? Right now I test nitrate, nitrite, ca, alk, and ph. I'm not really sure what my results are on the alk and ca tests.

You definitely need ammonia. Otherwise you have the basics and then some.

I have an ammonia test that hangs in the tank at all times.

That's just an ammonia alert. It is not a test and it has to get pretty high for it to show. By the time it shows on that it may be too late for your fish.
